>I don't find math to be "free and flexible"

Couldn't disagree with that more. That's a language of its own with a lot of extensions and variations introduced by the people involved. Basically any sound formal system (usually the talk's on rings) is viable, therefore math is indeed free and flexible. All you have is to escape the box of spoken language, the same thing as you'd do to learn a programming language if it's not "verbose" enough to make you think in phrases instead of the language in question.
